Army Pride

I've been receiving a TON of compliments on my purse so I figured I should repost this for anyone who missed it the first time. There are several styles of purses/bags that you can choose from. I chose this one because I knew it would be used as a purse and diaper bag all in one. Because of this I splurged and went for the large size. I can't tell you how much I love it!! The best part? I have a piece of my husband with me at all times...I love it!

If you don't have a uniform top available to send in, you can choose to use one they have in stock for an additional price. They have seeveral different styles and sizes you can choose from. You can also choose your interior color/pattern, accessories and more. Don't need a purse? They have several other items you can purchase such as wallets, teddy bears and keychains. (They also have a summer special going on right now with their keychains.)

And So It Begins...

Our house has been on the market for almost a year now and because of that we just switched realtors hoping that might help! My husband just left and guess what happens...we have a million tent worm/army caterpillars on our beautiful tree in the front yard. My wonderful dad came over to spray them for me because I HATE those things. (They are so disgusting and there were so many of them.) Well, in the process of spraying them there was a lack of water pressure coming from the hose. Hmmm, I wonder why that is? After a little investigating we found out our crawl space was flooding because we had a pipe that had burst!! I called my wonderful cousin (he's a plumber) to come over and he fixed it. So last  night I went to bed feeling pretty good. No more caterpillars, a fixed pipe and life was good again. So I thought! This morning I went to the laundry room to grab something and I heard dripping. "This can't be good!!" I thought. I turned the water off, called my cousin and now I'm at work hoping everything will be back to normal when I get home!

Oneida = Happy Boys

Oh Oneida, thank you for making my boys SUPER happy! We just received your package in the mail and the boys couldn't wait for me to open their new flatware! We were lucky enough to receive two of Oneida's 3pc. Chateau Child Sets.

I've been looking for children's flatware for quite a while without any luck. My boys are always fighting over the set at grandpa's house and now they both have a set of their very own! They use their flatware daily and they LOVE it! We no longer need to use the other sets that barely pick up food. Cole feels like "daddy" when he uses his set because he can use his knife and fork to cut all by himself. Henry loves the little spoon and fork because they are just his size.

I LOVE Oneida because of their quality! Our family has used Oneida for generations - my grandparents, parents and now US! These sets are perfect for little hands AND they're dishwasher safe. I highly recommend this flatware for anyone with small children. It would also make a wonderful gift for any mom-to-be!

*I received two free sets of flatware to keep and use in order to form an opinion. I was not compensated in any other manner. The opinions expressed above are my own and any claims should be verified on the sponsor’s site. Actual experience may vary. A special THANK YOU to Oneida for allowing me to review their flatware!
